We spent a few days in Nürnberg this week. Our hotel was in walking distance from the old innercity. In the mornings we walked down the street towards the looming medieval tower of the Frauentor, and had breakfast at the Literaturhaus, a literary cafe and restaurant just across the street from Neues Museum. E had scouted it out as a likely breakfast place before our arrival, as the breakfast surcharge in our hotel was quite a princely sum. It was a pleasant and calm place, with friendly staff that remembered us immediately after our first visit, and picked up on our preferences and habits instantly (like knowing our tea preference for breakfast, and that I took a double espresso shortly after our extended breakfast).

Looking over the posters with the names of the authors that had recently presented there or were slated to do so in the near future, was a good way to explore some new names (to me) in German language literature. Added some to my reading list.
